Akihiro Iwamatsu spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Rho-associated protein kinase and Microtubule. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cytoskeleton, Actin remodeling and Arp2/3 complex. Akihiro Iwamatsu has researched Actin remodeling in several fields, including MDia1, Microfilament, Actin-binding protein and Lamellipodium.

His work in Molecular biology covers topics such as Complementary DNA which are related to areas like Amino acid. He studied Rho-associated protein kinase and RHOA that intersect with Myosin, Rho kinase inhibitor, Myosin-light-chain phosphatase, Myosin light-chain kinase and Myosin phosphatase activity. His research integrates issues of Pseudopodia, Actin, Xenopus and Plasma protein binding in his study of Microtubule.

His most cited work include:

  • A caspase-activated DNase that degrades DNA during apoptosis, and its inhibitor ICAD (2836 citations)
  • Regulation of myosin phosphatase by Rho and Rho-associated kinase (Rho-kinase) (2500 citations)
  • Complementary DNA for a novel human interleukin (BSF-2) that induces B lymphocytes to produce immunoglobulin (1831 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Biochemistry, Cell biology, Molecular biology, Peptide sequence and Enzyme. His works in Amino acid, Gene, Cysteine, Fusion protein and Elicitor are all subjects of inquiry into Biochemistry. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Endocytosis and Cytoskeleton.

The Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Gene expression, Apoptosis, DNA, Complementary DNA and Caspase-activated DNase.
